    Gmail web interface. It's the same everywhere you go. Love it.

    It's kind of an approach I've adopted after freelancing for a while. I had to use many different machines, and found my dependance on home-cooked shortcuts, styles, patterns, etc very limiting. So I've settled for using "vanilla" in as many aspects of my work as possible.

    This extends to mail; I have a gmail account, so I use gmail, no importing into third party clients anymore.

      Can defenitely see where you're coming from with this Dirk. I have started working in similar ways since I'm always jumping between machines at work. Doesn't make sense to get too 'custom' in that case.

    I used to use Sparrow, now I just use the G-Mail web interface. It's looking quite sexy now :)

    Continuously being developed. The beta builds come in fortnightly if I am not mistaken, and simply much more better than Sparrow. I hope Mailbox comes to the Mac soon.

      Seems we're alone in this thread Josh, Postbox is simply perfect. Unibox seems to be a nice runner.

    Using Mail app, both on OS X and iOS. It works really well and I still think it's the best solution regarding mail communication.

    I just started using the Unibox app Beta: https://www.uniboxapp.com/

    So far I'm loving it, it's set up to be more of a chat experience. Only problem is you can't flag or add emails to groups.

      The Unibox concept kind of falls apart as soon as you have to cc someone on an email. Then your conversations end up with all these emails that aren't necessarily TO that person.

        Yeah it is a bit annoying. From what I've seen they've been getting a lot of feedback about that, so hopefully they'll change it when it comes out of Beta.

    I still love Sparrow, despite it not being in active development anymore.

    I used to use apple mail, but it was sluggish, and AirMail (in beta) is alright, but it feels very clunky to me.

    I too am in love with Sparrow, but I'm really looking forward to .Mail (dotMail) — http://dotmailapp.com/

      I've been excited for this app since it was announced over a year ago, hoping it's released soon.

      I'm still using Sparrow. Does what it needs to do quickly and efficiently. It's a shame development has stopped :/

      I've tried almost all the others (Postbox, UniBox, that AOL one) but I always come back to Sparrow. First I've heard about Airmail, going to check that out now :)

    I've been using Thunderbird lately. It's definitely not beautiful, but it's secure and it values my privacy.

    Somehow everything but Sparrow seems sluggish and unresponsive. Testet Airmail and Unibox and Mail.app and nothing came close. I don't know, something about Sparrows way to display information and the responsiveness of its animations just makes it still the best mail client. At least for me.
